The paternal romance : reading God-the-Father in early Western culture by Robert Con Davis( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Con Davis explored a single, complex topic - the fusion of Western reason with images and various cultural constructions of paternity. The Paternal Romance moves from the Odyssey, the Aeneid, and Hesiod's Theogony through Augustine's De Trinitate. Its final chapter, "Reflections on Post-Paternal Culture," shows how patriarchal discourse remains prominent today, though sometimes in diminished and ironic forms, and how feminist theorists including Helene Cixous and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak have attempted to displace or transcend it."--Book cover
